Making history: Miss America, Miss USA, Teen USA, Miss Universe are all Black


To be sure, other Black women have preceded them with each crown. No one who was alive will forget that Vanessa Williams was the first Black Miss America in 1984. According to CNN, Carole Gist won Miss USA in 1990, Janel Bishop won Miss Teen USA in 1991, and Janelle Commissiong won Miss Universe in 1977.

But never before had Black females held all four crowns at the same time, and social media is ebullient as a result of this monumental achievement.
